Juicy! One of those books where you aren't sure who to trust or who is telling the truth... it's fun to keep speculating over what is really going on as you learn a little bit more each chapter. Not a bubbly, happy book, but the grittiness keeps it s ...more

A solid psychological thriller. Gets really deep at times but overall I liked the narrator. Reads like a classic film noir movie and I kept picturing Robert Mitchum as one of the main characters in a black and white movie in my head while reading the ...more

Funny and heart-warming. Started this years ago while on vacation and then got distracted by life. Glad I picked it back up and got to finish it before the movie comes out later this year.

A solid story that had my attention from the beginning and I looked forward to what came next every time I had to take a break from reading, but I wasn't happy with the "twist" so I can only give 3 stars instead of 4. Still, a solid psychological thr ...more

It's a quick read and entertaining enough but it gets as over the top (unrealistic) as a Dan Brown novel sometimes. I was in the mood for something a little more authentic which is why I give it only three stars.
